So to kind of side tangent for a second, where does it say you can change the size of named items? I don't disagree that it makes sense that you should be able to, but last I knew it didn't say anywhere.

I ask because if it can be done, the reason why it can be done could clear things up.

If it can be done because there are already existing rules on resizing, then any named gear could be made into "armor for unusual creatures because that also has a rule for it.

Also who can buy what size gear? Can my gnome buy a small holy avenger? Can my titan fighter buy a large one? Can a pixie get a tiny one?

The rules on this matters and I found the dismissal of some is the OP's questions extremely rude and unnecessary.

Page 35 PFS Guild Guide:

Characters can buy resized weapons and equipment from their Chronicle sheets and the approved equipment lists for their size so long as their size is Small or Medium. Thus, if a Chronicle sheet offers a Small PC the opportunity to purchase a +1 frost longsword, she can buy a Small +1 frost longsword.

Characters purchasing equipment at sizes other than Small and Medium must adjust the prices per the existing weapon size rules (Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook 141). Unless an item on a Chronicle sheet lists a different size, it can only be purchased as a Small or Medium item.

Thank you.

The OP posted this thread a year ago. Nobody is dismissing their questions.

There is a certain poster in this thread that refuses to accept the answers we're giving them on the basis that they are not chiseled in stone. Being dismissive of that mentality is not rude, and it is necessary.

We have rules for small and medium. Large is what's unclear. Claiming that we're ignoring the question because we are unable to provide an answer is disingenuous.

Would tiny also be a consideration, too?

The Pathfinder RPG itself doesn't have rules for pricing tiny-sized weapons to begin with, so that would be outside the purview of PFS.

Large weapons are given prices in the CRB, at least.

Yea! Ok, I actually meant cows. You can't have your deer leather unless it says "deer studded leather".

I think you can have deer leather, or cow leather, or lizard leather, as they're all (in game terms) the same material.

Hate to beat a dead horse, pretty sure the answer is no, but can I upgrade a special material weapon to a unique weapon and giving up the special material component?

You cannot.


If all of the unique weapon's abilities are purchasable from legal sources, then you could create the weapon and call it what you want.
